Talent Academies




What are they?

Talent Academies provide Somerset’s young people with the chance to visit employers. The result of the academies provides the following benefits:

  • Learners with a real interest in an industry sector obtain a meaningful visit to real businesses that specialise in the sector activity.
  • Employers get to meet young people face to face, and learn how to engage them and what their interests are.

Current Talent Academies

The first academy, ‘Tomorrow’s Teachers,’ was a huge success and has now been rolled out into other industry sectors. Please click on the academies below to understand more about them.

We are still looking for businesses to host the academies. If you run a businesses in any of these sectors, and are keen to meet the next generation with passions the same as you, get in touch.
